Client: E-learning Design Center – MedVR
Elearning Design Center has recently implemented the SenseGlove Nova haptic gloves for training purposes in the healthcare industry. MedVR education is now using the SenseGlove Nova to enhance their healthcare training in virtual reality.
Virtual reality (VR) technology is increasingly being used in healthcare training programs as a way to simulate real-world scenarios and provide hands-on practice for medical professionals.
One of the main advantages of VR in healthcare training is its ability to create immersive and realistic simulations that mimic the conditions and environments of actual medical cases. This allows healthcare professionals to practice and perfect their skills in a safe and controlled environment, without the risks or pressures of real-life situations.
In this video, the trainee finds themself in a virtual doctor’s office, about to perform an assessment of the patient. With this basic training scenario, the trainee can get to know the medical tools, and how to use them correctly during the medical assessment. By using the SenseGlove Nova, the trainee gets to experience the real physical features of the medical instruments and patient. This helps the trainee to better remember, and replicate the actions in real life.
The use of haptic gloves is a vital addition to the training. VR gloves provide a far more immersive and realistic experience for the trainee, allowing them to actually feel the objects they are interacting with in virtual reality.
Enabling the sense of touch for healthcare training creates a stronger mind-body connection, and in turn, results in vastly improved muscle memory compared to normal controllers. The natural interactions allowed with VR gloves result in trainees feeling far more confident about performing the tasks in real life.
